the federal government take advantage of the low interest rate environment and issue $500 billion in 30-year bonds to fix the nation's infrastructure. believe me, the market would lap it up. fifth, i would slap tariffs on good made by countries that pollute when they make those countries. that would stop the endless parade of jobs migrating from our country to other countries that don't. they have a ridiculous competitive advantage over us. six, i would insist there be a course in high school called money where kids could learn what money is, how to save, how to invest. if people have financial literacy, they would be going to the stock market and they could learn to speculate wisely, perhaps to find their own therapeutics. seventh, i would appoint a steven jobs memorial competitiveness czar to figure out how our businesses could be made more competitive and find out what they need in order to hire and expand, not government handouts but perhaps trying to get educated engineers trying to help these companies. i would reappoint ben bernanke as chairman of the federal reserve. if it weren't fo
environment, some big market changes, but you have a management team now who has a handle on the problems, who knows what to do. we've got a plan to fix this company. and i think investors have to decide, gee, do they think that hp can turn this ship around? do they believe in the management team? do they believe in our employees? do they believe that customers want hp to win, which i can tell you they do. and do they believe in the product lineup? we spent quite a bit of time yesterday at our analysts day talking about the coming products in each of our divisions. we showed our new pc lineup. we showed -- talked about our multifunction printers. we talked about ink in the office, ink advantage. we talked about our new, very energy efficient arm-based servers that i think could revolutionize the server market. we talked about three par and storage as well as we're the leader, really, now in the development of sdm, software-defined networking. so products are going to be a really important part of how we bring hp back. and investors got to look at that whole story and say, gee, do i think this

are headed next? if the u.s. economic environment remains relatively slow, traders predict new highs for the precious metal could come in the first half of next year. that's if gold is able to break through certain technical levels. >> i think if we can get above $1,816. we should see 19 and a quarter. if we can get above $1,925, then $2,000 is definitely in our sights. >> reporter: experts say one thing that could push gold prices above $2,000 an ounce this year is if president obama is re-elected. the thinking-- the president will keep bernanke employed, which means interest rates stay very, very low. suzanne pratt, nbr, new york. >> tom: stocks moved higher ahead of tomorrow's report on the september job market. the s&p 500 really gained moment just after 10:00 a.m. eastern time after the commerce department released its report on september factory orders. while total orders were down, it wasn't as bad as feared. the index finished higher by seven tenths of a percent. trading volume held steady on the big board-- 672 million shares. it was just under 1.6 billion on the nasdaq. fin

environment that makes it impossible to govern, that makes it impossible to bring people together because they make campaign commitments right away in a campaign environment in a polarized environment. governor romney wants to be elected president because he wants to govern and get things done. he did that in massachusetts. he was able to work with a democratic legislature -- 87% of the state house and state senate in massachusetts, when he was the republican governor, were democrats. and yet they were able to cut taxes 19 times and get things done. they improved the bond rating for the state of massachusetts, by the way. they got an upgrade. we've seen a downgrade in the united states. they saw household incomes go up under governor romney's time in office by $5,000. household incomes have gone down by $4,300 under president obama. unemployment went down to 5.6% under governor romney in massachusetts. it's gone up to above 8% under president obama. he knows how to govern. and he knows how to lay out the principle, bring people together to achieve those goals in the legislative process, a
protests created a hostile environment for jewish students at uc berkeley. the u.s. department of education launched an investigation into the charges filed in july by recent graduates. the complaint says the school's annual apartheid weekend couraged hate speech. the university says the protests are free speech. >> 7:15, a new poll shows republican presidential candidate mitt romney was the big winner in the debate last night. jacqueline live in the bureau doing fact checking about some of the statements made in that debate. >> reporter: dave, mitt romney stood out last night for being aggressive, constantly calling out president obama, keeping him on the defensive side. mitt romney also didn't back down when the two butted hads over tax plans. the president says romney's plans will raise taxes or increase the deficit. >> governor romney's central economic plan calls for a 5 trillion dollar tax cut on top of the extension of bush tax cuts another trillion dollars and 2 trillion in military spending they have not asked for. >> first of all i don't have a 5 trillion dollar tax cut or a tax c
in this environment. one more point*. >> we had this discussion before the. >> in order to reduce the deficit there have to be revenue in addition to cut. >> mitt romney has ruled out revenue. >> absolutely. neil: okay. i think the gist of that was how to get the deficit under control in have to have a mix of spending cuts and tax increases. and what about the president in a mitt romney to some ratio? and that it would not cut it for him. i don't think he scored. i think romney clearly one. he does need to provide more specifics, but i think he was in command. he made a couple of statements that need to be clarified. and he does not want more revenue but he wasn't true growth not taxes. what do you define as more revenue? as compared to current gdp your under current law? we are under much higher levels than before. to thing surprised me. obama's said social security doesn't have a problem. it needs tweeting. it is underfunded $8 trillion and he also said his idea was not that different than governor romney's. especially since the president has not said much but when the president compared hi
to talk about the idea that government should be smaller and get out of the way. and an environment that is favorable for business is actually an environment where business will create jobs. how that's going to go over? >> it won't go over well, he hasn't had a real plan so far. these are about real people's lives. he's got a tougher job i think than the president tonight. because most people because of his comments whether he realizes it or not, he's lived a privileged life. and he doesn't understand common workers, what we go through every day. so he's got a tough job to make people let them know that he does understand what they go through. if he can do that, he'll have a good night. if he can't, i don't think the zingers are going to matter. because big problems require big solutions not bumper sticker answers. >> of course we know the relationship between white house and labor has not always been rosy over the last four years. is there something the president also needs to say to impress you? >> again, it's not what he says to me but what really american workers need. and that'
's never said before or if he wants to save that stuff for a more controlled environment. that will tell us as much about his temperament and his strategy as it will about his plans. let me bring in lawrence o'donnell, chris. lawrence is in the spin room tonight, which i think has yet to begin to spin. lawrence, what do you think the expectations are on both sides tonight? >> reporter: well, rachel, in this room, there are a lot of $10,000 bets going on behind me about what the president is going to say tonight and what mitt romney is going to say tonight. i think the rules actually favor president obama because there are almost no rules. they are going to do two-minute statements, they're each going to get two minutes at the beginning of the subjects that jim leherer will introduce. and discussing not policing 30-second rebuttals and 60-second statements. none of that red light stuff with the clocks and all of that stuff. and when you're in mitt romney's position, where he's actually trying to hide some things, trying to hide the details of the deduction side of his tax plan, he's still hi
. because he looks exhausted. that's not what a president running for election in a tough environment need to be. >> we've all been pretty critical of the president including me. so i'll now bat in the one caveat. mitt romney has problems with certain voters, and those problems are tied to policies that he has advocated for over the course of this campaign. if you go out the way obama campaign looks at the map in the world and you go to individual voter groups, demographics in specific swing states, many of those problems he has with hispanic voters, didn't do anything to solve his problems with hispanic voters. he didn't solve that problem. his problem with educated women voters. those issues didn't come up in this debate, he didn't solve any problems with those people. you think about just in terms of the battle ground states, there's going to be a tightening, we're seeing a tightening already. but the obama people, we have a swing state possible this morning from nbc and "wall street journal" president obama ahead by 8 points in ohio. it remains the case tomorrow as it was earlier today

the other party working against him, someone managing a tough political environment and in other words they heard a template from mitt romney doing what barack obama has failed to do in the last four years. so the fact that mitt romney got to talk about a record of bipartisanship that, yes, did produce a health care law in massachusetts, but also put massachusetts number one in the country in educational rankings, that's all to the good for mitt romney. and many americans did not process that information until last night. >> this was by most accounts, and i'm sure you heard this too, congressman, the most policy-oriented debate, maybe we've ever had. at times it was pretty wonky, especially for folks following it so closely may not know dodd frank and some of the specifics they talked about. and there's also criticism of the format, that it was a little too open-ended. do you think that voters, just in general, took away something important from this or does this format need to be scrapped and to go back to the old where the buzzer hits? >> i think last night's format was very good for
said your plan will kill 700,000 jobs. i don't want to kill jobs in this environment. make one more point. >> let him answer the taxes thing for a moment. mr. president? >> well, we've had this discussion before. >> about the idea that, in order to reduce the deficit, there has to be revenue in addition to cuts. >> there has to be revenue in addition to cuts. governor romney has ruled out revenue. he's ruled out revenue. >> completely? >> the revenue i get is by more people working, getting higher pay, paying more taxes. that's how we get growth and how we balance the budget. but the idea of taxing people more, putting more people out of work, you'll never get there. you never balance the budget by raising taxes. spain spends 42% of their total economy on government. >> okay. >> we're not spending 42% of our economy on government. i don't want to go down the path of spain. i want to go down the path of growth that puts americans to growth with more money coming in. >> go ahead, mr. president. you are saying, in order to get the job done it's got to be balanced. >> if we are serious,

two factors at play. there's been the environment of the country, the large number of people that think we're on the wrong track. and the perceptions and images of the candidates. each had an advantage. what happened last night was the images of the candidates, mitt romney evened that ground. when that happens, people say, well, since they're both roughly even, we're off on a wrong track, why wouldn't i take a chance on the new guy? that's the difficult side that president obama has to get. he has to turn this around. >> he has two more coming up. donna, you're in the room with president obama today. what do you tell him? >> mr. president, get a good night's sleep, have that anniversary champagne, but guess what? you have two more debates. look up and give it to mitt romney. also, talk about big bird next time. >> thanks very much. >>> thanks so much, george. it was a huge night online for the debate, as well. the event was exploding, literally, on social media, setting a new record on twitter. bianna golodryga is here to break down all the numbers. the most tweeted about eve
